Mother’s Comfort Project

We have delivered more than 12,000 hand-made beds to shelter animals and want to sew and deliver thousands more! Our goal is to bring as many warm beds to animal shelters as possible. We need your support to keep this project going, so if you’d like to help, you can donate whatever you can. We started Mother’s Comfort Project in New York City in 2009 when we discovered the shelters use linens and bedding very quickly and desperately need beds. Animal shelters can be cold and noisy. Beds comfort the animals who are coping with the stresses of the shelter, making them more likely to sleep better and fight off illnesses that can run through shelters. We have also made thousands of catnip toys, giving cats a boost and some fun, and also making them look more perky for potential adopters. Giving dogs and cats a bed soothes them, and we can tell you from experience, that every one of them who I’ve met gives thanks with their own show of gratitude — lovey eyes, purrs and licks. You can see how much the animals appreciate their new beds. See our other campaigns that help at-risk animals. Please help by volunteering or making a tax-deductible donation.
